Application-Aware Network Performance Management for Dummies


Organizations depend on their networks and applications for the success of their business.

This e-book explores the need for an integrated approach for visibility into your network and the concept of AANPM. You’ll discover the use cases for AANPM and the building blocks for an effective AANPM solution.

2011 Human Capital Management Buyer's Guide


It’s not your father’s HR anymore. Plain old-fashioned human resources has blossomed into human capital management (HCM)—a vastly more powerful and far-reaching approach to managing your company’s most valuable asset. In TEC’s 2011 Human Capital Management Buyer’s Guide, you’ll learn about the latest challenges, trends, and developments in HCM, the state of the HCM market, HCM resources and research materials, and HCM case studies and success stories. Download your free PDF copy of TEC’s 2011 Human Capital Management Buyer’s Guide today!

This guide discusses the challenges that medium and large businesses face in acquiring, managing, and retaining their staff, and addresses how HCM and related solutions can help organizations address some of these challenges. It covers the entire employee lifecycle, from recruitment and onboarding, to performance and compensation, career development, learning management, succession planning, workforce planning, and analytics. It is organized around three main discussion points:

  • Recruitment Challenges
  • Loyalty and Retention Challenges
  • Global and Mobile Workforces

The information provided in this guide aims to assist companies looking to manage their workforce by providing insight into the endless HCM software options available, including solutions from niche players (best-of-breed), crossover vendors (vendors that have added talent management to their existing solution or suite), and Tier 1 and 2 enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors (those that have made a talent management or HCM solution as part of their ERP offering), and how they can help organizations overcome some of these challenges.

The guide also contains a special spotlight section on software-as-a-software (SaaS) deployment options and the vendors that provide them.

The guide features customer success stories that illustrate how these various HCM-based solutions have helped companies address the HCM challenges they were facing.

Also included is a vendor directory—organized into sections for recruitment, human resources (HR) management, talent management, learning management, time and attendance, and more—to assist companies looking for HCM solutions with a specific focus.

This guide serves as a useful tool for medium-to-large organizations looking to determine the HCM solution that best suits their business model and specific needs.

State of the HCM Market


What is HCM?

HCM is still a relatively new term and is often used to refer to both a company’s processes and the technology behind those processes. From a process perspective, HCM encompasses the activities associated with acquiring, developing, managing, and retaining a company’s most valuable asset—its people. It covers a broad range of activities, including identifying and recruiting the best available talent (people) and partnering with managers to develop and motivate their employees to realize their full potential. The quality and performance of an organization’s workforce will differentiate successful organizations from the others in an intensely competitive market.

From a software perspective, HCM systems are solutions that encompass functionality for recruiting, learning, training and development, performance and compensation management, succession planning, and reporting and analytics. Unlike the traditional HR systems of the past, these solutions address the full spectrum of talent management (from hire to retire, and everything in between). HCM software includes modules for recruiting, onboarding, managing talent, tracking performance, and analyzing data—among other things. By consolidating these various modules, vendors are now developing suites of products that are often available at a considerably lower cost than stand-alone solutions.

As we’ve seen in recent years, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in human capital and talent management are changing the way vendors market their products. Many large software vendors cater to HR professionals seeking an integrated solution from a single vendor rather than different point solutions from a variety of vendors. More often than not, large vendors purchase smaller vendors, whose solutions provide the software functionality needed to “complete” the large vendors’ offerings. M&A are often seen as a means to maintain and strengthen the acquiring company’s position in the marketplace, as well as a relatively quick way for the company to expand into new markets while incorporating new technologies.
